Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fenix PD35 TAC 1000 Lumen CREE XP-L LED Tactical Flashlight with Two EdisonBright CR123A Lithium Batteries (Office Product)
I own many lights, and am a Fenix fan. Recently I tried a Terralux TT-5 which is 650 lumen and a beautiful light. I decided to give it to my wife as a edc light. I wanted a edc light that could serve as a self defense light, and decided to look at Fenix to see what I could get in a small package.
The PD35 seemed to fit the bill. I already own several large Fenix TK41 lights which are amazing throwers, but are large and pretty hefty.
Well, I received this light yesterday and all I can say is WOW!!!! This small little light is outstanding in the light that it throws. I compared it side by side to my TK41 and the brightness seems the same, so, I would venture to say that, on high setting this is truly 850 lumens. The light throw (side to side) is actually better than the TK41 and there seems to be no real visible corona, just an even, wide saturation of bright light cutting through the darkness.
I was driving late last night on a very lonely road, (no cars in sight) and stuck this light out the window then turned my car lights out, and was amazed at the illumination. The road was illuminated far better and further than my headlights!!!!!! I could easily drive my car on. Dark road if headlights failed,( not recommended, but just an fyi for review)
I grab the TK41 if I need to see something at 200+ yards.
This light will easily make someone with the wrong intentions, be seeing rings in their eyes if shined in their face. I am sure it could also be rigged for use as a weapon light on a rifle. The brightness and throw would make this a perfect candidate.
Plus it is very compact. And, as with all my Fenix lights, very well made.
This is my new favorite flashlight by far. The amount of light that you get out of such a small package, and with Fenix quality, and a price point of under $100, I would highly recommend this flashlight for your home, outdoors needs and put one in the hand of every woman in your family to carry with her.
Well done Fenix!!!!!!!
